What is Super PAC?

Definition and meaning of Super PAC: A Super PAC is a type of political action committee (PAC) that can raise unlimited amounts of money from individuals, corporations, unions, and other special interest groups that can be used to fund political campaigns. Super PACs are not subject to the same restrictions as traditional PACs and can accept unlimited contributions from any individual or organization. They can also spend unlimited funds to influence the outcome of elections, but are prohibited from directly contributing to a candidate's campaign or coordinating with a candidate's campaign. Super PACs are often criticized for their potential to allow the wealthy to influence the political process in an unequal way.
